Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rescue

We believe that Gentle Spirit Horses Rescue is a very unique part of the greater Sioux Falls area. Though there are other horse rescues in the area, Gentle Spirit Horses has a much larger reach and variety to which it caters to the Sioux Falls area. GSH focuses primarily on local horses and helping people who are going through a hard time and need help with their horses. We are working with the Animal Industry Board to become a resource for SD Sheriffs in the case of seizures, and working to increase knowledge and education about proper care of horses in our community

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals and our mission is the same: to provide assistance to neglected, abused and unwanted horses, and through outreach and education, promote responsible horse ownership.

We use a combination of social media and hands on events to help promote the rescue and it's goals as well as educate the community about horses and our rescue. We have also started an equine internship program to help promote education about the equine industries and rescues in general. We also encourage volunteers to come down and learn about the horses.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
